Russia Intercepts Israeli Jets; Threatens Shootdown: Report

israel russiaBy Brandon Turbeville

According to reports by Lebanese, Iranian, and Israeli media, the Russian Air Force recently intercepted Israeli aircraft flying over Lebanon near the Syrian border. The reports coming from these news sources claim that the Russians informed the Israelis that they were approaching Russian-controlled airspace and that they would be shot down if they did not change course. The Israelis complied.

The Israeli planes were apparently flying over the Akkar region of northern Lebanon.

Iranian media has reported that the Israeli mission was to spy on Russian ships currently docked at the port of Tartus in Syria.

The Iranian outlet, al-Alam, also reported that the Israelis were attempting to spy on Russian planes flying out of the Latakia air base and to determine whether or not the Russians are providing arms to Hezbollah.

Although in September the Russians and the Israelis reached an agreement regarding the airspace over Syria so as not to experience any unintended clashes between the two air forces, the Israelis have still poked and prodded at the outskirts of Russian-controlled air space on a number of occasions, prompting the Russians to respond by ordering them out of the area.

As Mint Press News reports,

Russia’s defense ministry said Thursday that its forces in Syria had set up a “hotline” with Israel’s military to avoid clashes in the sky over the war-torn country.

An “information-sharing” mechanism “has been established through a hotline between the Russian aviation command center at the Hmeimim air base (in Syria) and a command post of the Israeli air force,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that the two sides were undergoing training on how to cooperate.

According to As Safir, the Lebanese source said that Russian aircraft immediately blocked the Israeli jets’ path while they flew above the Akkar region in northern Lebanon. “The Russians immediately sent a clear warning to the Israelis that entering Syrian airspace would be a pretext for opening fire,” the source added.

According to the paper, which is considered loyal to Hezbollah, the Israeli aircraft quickly heeded the warnings and changed their course.

After decades of having their run of the place, it seems that the Israelis are finally being told to stay in their own sandbox, even if the sandbox does belong to someone else.

While it is no doubt a positive step to see the Israelis forced to act in a civilized manner, a direct military confrontation between Israel and Russia would no doubt be both a dangerous escalation in the Syrian conflict and the tensions between Russia and the United States.

  1. Notice the key phrase- “FORCED” to act in a civilized manner. And yes fraught with risk, because nothing would make a neocon happier than a casus belli involving an incident where an Israeli jet is fired upon, preferably downed I assume, the sick bastards, but I have to say- I haven’t felt this much absolute giddy schadenfreude since… I don’t know when. It’s like when you see some a-hole driving like a maniac, almost runs you off the road then flips YOU off, and two minutes later you see em pulled over by the cops. You might not like cops, but you sure take pleasure in that situation. It may be just Israel probing response time, like Russia’s “accidental” border incursions testing Turkey’s air defenses, so no big deal, but the Israeli bully getting kicked out of their heretofore zone of impunity gives me joy no end. Bout time.

    • I can totally relate to that ‘giddy’ feeling ol And not only in relation to the Bolshevik state that calls itself Israel, but also watching Russia put Washington in check. I strangely feel intense pleasure in watching the traitors running this country begin to realize their end is near. I wish someone would have taken a photo of Netanutjob at the moment he was told his jets had been run off. I bet he had actual steam coming out of both ears. LOL

  2. Russia has deployed but not employed S300, S400 systems in the middle east. Things will get very interesting when they do. And they will.

    Wonder if the Ruskies can handle Israel’s US MIC Tin Foil Dome?

    Last night Charlie ‘Joo-Banker Hand Puppet’ Rose interviewed John ‘Mad Cow’ McCain on PBS (Pure Bull Sh*t) and McCain stated that a ‘no fly zone’ should be established over Syria immediately. Talk about your total detachment from reality.

    Putin is illustrating to the World at large who the 911 perps that manufactured the endless War on Terr’ah are. Here in the JooSofA after 14 years of FBI nailing 18 year old antisocial saps with 20 gallon propane cylinders and a cigarette lighter and then sentencing them to 20 years in prison are about to come to an end. It is my sincerest hope that the FBI federal employees involved in this criminal deception are prosecuted as the enemies of the Constitution that they in fact are.

    But I rant …

    • recent epiphany —- W-rong Bush MURDERED hundreds of First Responders by having that woman from the EPA reassure them that the area was SAFE to work in …… when the government knew DAMN WELL it was NOT. Now cancer is causing SLOW AGONIZING DEATH while the Politicians pretend to care.

    • Nice rant. Great euphimisms, too. Pretty funny.

      • I’m retired. To much time on my hands …

        • I’m jobless at the moment, right there with ya. Temporarily, I hope. But hey, keep em coming, I do appreciate the humor, news being so gawd awful soul killing horribly depressing as it is. And it’s only Wednesday.

          • Chin up! On the Streets and in the Towns this is still America. The MSM (mainstream melodrama) is a script.

            ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ Those founder framers Dudes were stoners for sure.

            Pursue your Happiness sir. Good Day!

            Thanks I needed that, just got bad news myself unrelated to this. Nothing live/death and not that it can’t be solved, just frustrating, but your positive message couldn’t come at a better time 🙂

  3. They are the best in the world and they are in Syria now. That’s why the Israelis promptly turned around. I’m not sure what radar system noticed them but they have it covered. They control Syria you don’t see anything more than this challenging them and McCain trying to give weapons to the “rebels” aka our “enemy”.

    • Remember the saying “Never Mess with Texas”? Now, the IDF bullies will be hearing the phrase “Never Mess with Russia”.
      Way to go, Russian Air Force … keep those IDF wussies out of Syria. 🙂

  4. Read up on “Khibiny” to get the answers.

    Actually any Russian/Israeli conflict will be very interesting. No relationship could be fraught with more contradictory or loaded historical context. Many Jews in Israel from Russia and Jews have a long and rather dark history of conflict between their elite at least and their main enterprises in Russia and around Russia and its historical Byzantine forefathers.

      Just use protection because the risk from STDs would be extreme and imagine yet another hybrid resulting from anything else being bred with the Zionist DNA? After all the result of the unnatural union of Islam and Zionism gave us Wahhabism writ large.

  7. The arrogance of the International Jews is being challenged in the Middle East .
    Russia will not,and cannot let its interests be destroyed there, and responding brilliantly.
    They are clearly in the right ,and have truth on their side.

    Putin is a sovereign leader, of a sovereign nation, free of the NWO, and his leadership cannot be matched by the Rothschild’s puppets leading the West.

    Lebanese ,and Syrian airspace belongs to those respective countries, and not the NWO.
    Russia isxmsking sure it it is free.

    We are witnessing the end of ,” the greater Israel project,”and the ” Project for a New American Century”.

    Thank you Mr Putin, and Russia !
    Hope is in the world .

    Next Europe /Germany must be freed from NATO !

  8. I hope Russia invades and annihilates Israel
